Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.







Q: What would you give as a birthday gift to a fellow book lover? {FYI - My birthday is tomorrow!}

A: First off, Happy birthday Billy!! I hope you have the best birthday ever!

Secondly, to a fellow book lover friend, I have given Amazon gift cards. They get to choose what they want. Another great idea is a book pillow. You really don't know how much you need one, until you get one.

  7. I really enjoy Neil Gaiman's books. I haven't read Anansi Boys yet, however.

    Gift cards to a bookstore are the best. :-) I do love Amazon cards in particular. Although I rarely use them to buy gifts anymore. I tend to save them up until I get enough to buy something big that I need for the house.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  11. On the Book Blogger Hop YES to the book pillow!! I listed that one too.
    In addition to other things, I also said a heating pad. Hey, depending on how good the book is, my reading posture may be something even my 10 year-old would give the side eye too.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
